Research Thrust: Understanding Epigenetic contributions to behavioral outcomes.
Basic research: How does the environment influence changes in brain function that lead to physiological and functional issues in the body (i.e., can we define the mind-body connection).
Applied research: How do alternative therapies such as yoga and breath exercises reverse or attenuate such changes. Social cultural behavioral modeling of stereotypes.
How: EEG and NIRS, psychophysiological measures, and virtual reality.
